I am in orientation now for the New Grad Residency and I have a ASN. As far as shift diff is concerned, it is about $5.00 for nights, and I believe $3.25 for weekends. Let me know if you have any more questions!

Well I haven't actually started on my unit yet, I'm still in the general hospital orientation. But I was an extern at the same hospital, and I knew that I liked the hospital before I accepted a RN position.

I'm a new grad so my scheduling is a little different than an experienced nurse. However, I work on a step-down unit, and the nurses work 3 12 hour shifts a week. But they have to work at least one weekend day (Sat or Sun) every month. But it all depends on your unit the frequency of weekend shifts. Hope this helps!

I am currently waiting on my license just relocating as well I already have a job at the Atlanta Medical Center just waiting on the license. Experience is what sells you noy BSN or ADN unless you want to go in management. Its helpful to have a speciality I have TNCC, ACLS and BLS and have been a nurse 14 years

Don't you have to get your BSN within 5 years or something? They may have ADNs but Wellstar is HUGE on nursing advancement and education and they really encourage their nurses to have BSNs. I know you're a little step up from LPNs but not too far, and just as a forewarning of the climate there, they recently mandated that all their LPNs can only work as techs.

Experience is NOT the only thing that sells you nowadays, and it's sure not going to sell you as a new grad. In this economy, nurses are clamoring for jobs, and hospitals are afforded the luxury of seemingly outrageous demands, such as requiring BSNs. In fact, one of the hospitals in my city recently started posting jobs "BSN required," and I thought it was the joke b/c the hospital itself is...not so great. Good luck, but I'd start looking at BSN programs anyway. That's really what employers are looking for and it gives you the competitive edge in a market where you really need it.
